Prose to Go Review

The New York Journal of Book gave Prose To Go a wonderful review, you can read it here

Prose To Go is comming

The excitement is beginning! Prose To Go will be out next month. It is the commutation of stories from 18 great, including me, Canadian freelancers. Thirty-four first person stories.

It is also an interesting study in cooperation. One day a group of writers decided to create their own anthology of stories they have shared with each other over the years; many of which have been published in national or international publications. The stories come from writers from 14 distinctive location from NWT to PEI and in less than a year Prose To Go was born.

A big thank you to the group members, Barbara Florio Graham, Irene Davis and Fred Desjardins who took up the task of editing the book and to Bridgeross Publishing for taking our book and running with it.

Summer – what are you reading?

Summer is the grandest season. All my work is completed, I just finished the last course for my Leadership Certificate, so I can now, without guilt, tackle that big pile of books on my desk.

I am just about to dive into the recruiting chapter in Building Powerful Community Organizations, by Michael Brown, in the hope it will give me some new ideas to get parents out to our parent committee meeting at the 524 Sturgeon Cadet Squadron.  (Maybe it will have some ideas for getting people out to FSMSA meetings as well.) I was just given Still Alice, by Lisa Genova. It’s a novel about a woman’s descent into the Alzheimer’s. Might be a bit too close to home right now, but I am going to give it a try. I also have a couple of good old murder mysteries to catch up on. All in all a good crop to choose from.

So what are you reading?
